Emmerdale's Leyla Cavanagh reckons her man is cheating Tuesday's episode (ITV, 7.00pm see our TV Guide for listings).

Having discovered that husband Liam Cavanagh doesn't actually work at the hospital like he claimed, Leyla is more confused than ever. Panicking that he could be playing away, Leyla becomes convinced that he could be having an affair with Bernice Blackstock, and soon an idle comment from Mandy Dingle sends Leyla spinning. 

Knowing Liam is lying to her about where he's going each day, when it transpires that Bernice, his ex, also hasn't returned from a course, Leyla puts two and two together and comes up with AFFAIR.

With Liam out of his mind with grief over the death of his teenage daughter Leanna, who viewers know was murdered by village villain Meena Jutla, Leyla decides that perhaps sleeping with Bernice – who's made it plain that she still has feelings for her ex – would be the ideal way for Liam to escape his reality.

When Leyla seems him disappearing off with flowers, she's convinced that she is about to catch him up to no good and gets Priya to come with her as she tails him.

The friends are utterly thrown when he pulls up outside a random house which Leyla decides is his love shack.

Later, unaware that he has been followed by his wife, Liam returns home in an unusually good mood, claiming to have had a good day at work!
